Daisy’s Dream supports children and young people, and their families, who have been bereaved or are living in a family where someone has a life-limiting illness.

The Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution is here to stay. False starts have popped up during the history of transportation, but this time there is no stopping it.

Money will help nonprofit deliver meals to West Valley seniors
Meals of Joy, a Litchfield Park-based nonprofit meal delivery program that serves seniors throughout the West Valley, has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the ON Semiconductor Foundation.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for the organization’s hot and ready-to-eat meals is 3 1/2 times what it was before March 2020, and the organization delivers more than 700 meals per week to seniors in Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Peoria, Sun City, Surprise/Sun City Grand and Sun City West.
As my daughter-in-law is an ICU nurse at a local hospital, I get all the stories. Most hospitals, including hers, are now chronically crowded and bustling with overburdened healthcare workers. Keeping track of that portable patient monitor, or infusion pump when patients come and go is nearly impossible. Where is ‘Indoor GPS’ when you need it? Imagine being able to accurately locate each and every piece of equipment down to about a cubic foot in a facility. Imagine being able to accurately track each one of your patients in real-time in this COVID-19 hot environment.
This National Volunteer Month, we are recognizing ON Semiconductor employees who have been exceptionally active in giving back to their local communities through nonprofit board member roles and volunteerism. We thank them for making a difference!
